Manhart has revealed their latest creation – the MH3 V8 RS Biturbo Clubsport E92 M3, which features some pretty radical performance and cosmetic upgrades.
In fact, Manhart has done away with the M3′s factory S65 engine altogether and drops in the 4.4L biturbo V8 engine (S63) from the X6M / X5M! Power was then bumped up from the factory 555hp to a whopping 750hp and 671lb-ft torque! To achieve this impressive gain in power, the S63 turbos were modified, air intake replaced, and pistons/rods reinforced. The car’s … CONTINUED

The tuned 135i coupe is equipped with DCT transmission and tuned to be 400+ HP / 420 lb-ft torque with piggyback tune, intake tubing, M3 suspension arms/bushings, coilovers, and exhaust system.

VAC Motorsports brings us some sights from the 2011 Professional Motorsport World Show held in Cologne Germany. Lots of high performance parts on display – from professional racing (all the way up to F1) to tuning solutions for the casual racer and tuners like many of our members.
The BMW F10 M5 has joined the stable of G-Power, a BMW tuner which has turned out some of the most potent BMWs in recent years. And they now have their energies directed a BMW M’s newest flagship sedan. They’ve teased their upcoming G-Power F10 M5 with:
It is here: The all new BMW M5 F10 has already arrived at G-POWER
History is repeating itself. Just like with the BMW M3 GTS one can observe that the first drive of the new BMW M5 F10 leads it directly … CONTINUED
Four members of M3POST were gathered recently for an epic photo and video session. The session was particularly unique because of the cars involved. No less than four white M3s were in attendance, each featuring BBS LM wheels and three with ESS superchargers. The result was some spectacular photos and a heart thumping video.
Check out the photos and video inside.
For those of us who take the M3 to the track, I think it would be fair to say that a part of us always wishes that the M3 could just be a little faster, a little lighter, and a little more like a race car.
Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as putting racing parts on our street cars — most of us don’t rebuild our brake calipers every year, drive on roads without potholes, or have neighbors who can tolerate the unmuffled music from our S65 … CONTINUED
The BMW X5 M was not built to be a drag racer (nor is any BMW for that matter), but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be an absolute brute on the quarter mile track, despite its hefty 5,368 pounds curb weight. Given its torque crazy bi-turbo motor, that’s no surprise.
The bi-turbo engine also reacts very well to software tunes and this video shows just how much tuning potential the motor has. RENNtech was able to run in the 11′s while testing out their … CONTINUED
